Lee James Flounders, from Hartlepool, admitted attacking a male officer in the town on December 7 last year.

He also pleaded guilty earlier this year to assaulting two different policemen in Middlesbrough two days later on December 9.

Flounders, 49, who lives in Eton Street, has now appeared at court to be sentenced for the attacks and for three other offences after he admitted two counts of interfering with a motor vehicle in Hartlepool on April 8 of this year and possessing class A cocaine on the same date.
